PostPoints tip: Wikipedia on your phone

If you wanted to read Wikipedia in your phone's browser, for years you had to rely on third-party sites that repackaged the Web encyclopedia's content in a phone-friendly format. A few months ago, however, the site rolled out its own mobile-phone version, and at the end of last month pronounced it officially open for service. So you don't need to remember any extra domain names anymore; typing "" into your phone's browser--or, on many devices, just clicking on a Wikipedia link in an e-mail or on another Web page--should take you to the new mobile interface, with an option to switch back to the full-sized version if your phone can display it and you'd like to edit an entry there.
